Why? Just.... why?
In 1962, Ian Fleming's literary secret agent burst on to the silver screen in a little film called Dr. No. When released, the film was a critical and box office success, paving the way for a series based on the adventures of James Bond. In the movies, Bond went up against ruthless villains, like the terrorist organization SPECTRE (Special Executive for Counterintelligence, Terrorism, Revenge and Extortion), and met some of the most beautiful women ever to grace the motion picture industry. He was cool, made puns whenever a villain died in a gruesome fashion and occasionally annoys his nerdy gadget supplier, Q. All of that was about to change. In Casino Royale, which is a reboot of the 007 franchise, the series was given a more "realistic" image. The film portrays Bond as an emotionless robot, showing no mercy to his opponents and practically killing everyone in sight. If I wanted a character like that, I'd pick Governor "Ah-nuld." Anyway, 007 is sent to go after a terrorist group that is based at a casino in Montenegro called "Casino Royale", which is owned by an uber-wimpy bean-counter who gets killed later in the film by his boss. Casino Royale is probably the worst James Bond film ever conceived... Having Daniel Craig play Bond is like having Carrot Top portray Godzilla. It's an insult to Fleming, the films and the very spirit of Bond.
